About meTrying to make some sort of life for myself in academia.
About my libraryIf I hate a book it will probably not be in my library, so although I will be using the 1 star rating, this does not mean that I really disliked the book. Ratings: 1 = Did not enjoy reading it, but it's not bad enough, and is perhaps too important, to expel from my library. 1 1/2 = "Oh yeah, I read that . . . it was okay." 2 = It was okay, maybe better than that. 2 1/2 = Good. But I had some issues with it. 3 = Good to very good-ish. 3 1/2 = Very good to very very good-ish. 4 = Better than great, and I think about these books often. 4 1/2 = Nearly perfect. 5 = Has re-wired my brain and I have not been the same since. Basically anything 3 or 3 1/2 and up is really really good and I would recommend without hesitation, if it is the sorta thing you might be into. And not everything I've read is rated....
